GSY Tech PS5 Xbox Series X PC

Thanks to Capcom's French PR team, we can finally show you Resident Evil 2 (3 will follow shortly) running on Xbox Series X with ray tracing. As you will see, the game struggles a lot more than Resident Evil 7, that we showed a couple of days ago. It is no real surprise as Resident Evil ViIlage also struggled with ray tracing but without VRR it's not the best ay to enjoy the experience. It would clearly benefit from a 40 Hertz mode as gameplay sequences seem to remain above 40 fps, though it's unlikely such mode will ever be developed for the game. Let's hope it's something Capcom will consider for Resident Evil 4 Remake.

Because we never got the console versions of Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3, we had to turn to the PC ones to record some gameplay footage with ray tracing. We chose the highest settings for both ray tracing options (there is one for global illumination and reflections and another one for light reflection) but we recorded the following videos before the latest NVIDIA drivers became available.

The Capcom showcase which took place yesterday announced the October release of a Gold Edition of Resident Evil Village which will include The Winters' Expansion (also available separately). In this new content, it will be possible to play the main campaign in third person, some new characters and stages will be added to the Mercenaries mode and a new chapter will be added to continue the storyline as Rose Winters. This new content will ship on October 28 along with Resident Evil Re:Verse, a free multiplayer experience for those who already own Resident Evil Village. We were also told that the current update for Resident Evil 7 biohazard, Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3 will be available today so players can enjoy 4K, ray tracing, high frame rate, and more specifically on Playstation 5, 3D audio and DualSense support (with haptic feedback and adaptative triggers). There was also mention of a certain Resident Evil 4 Remake, Exoprimal, Monster Hunter: Sunbreak and more. You'll find the available assets and the full press release inside.

Capcom announced that three Resident Evil titles will be released this year in enhanced versions for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S. Developed using the proprietary RE Engine, the games will feature updated visuals, including ray tracing, increased frame rate, and 3D audio to enhance immersion. For PlayStation 5 players, all three titles will also feature DualSense controller support with haptic feedback and adaptive triggers. Players who have already purchased Resident Evil 2, Resident Evil 3 or Resident Evil 7 biohazard on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One will be able to take advantage of these enhancements at no additional cost through the PS4 to PS5 digital upgrade option or the Xbox Smart Delivery system. An upgrade patch will also be available for PC users at no additional cost.

You probably are already aware that a certain praymod has made a mod for Resident Evil 2 allowing to play the game in first person view, just like in RE7. If you're interested, the mod can be downloaded right here and is very easy to install. FOV can be tweaked, along with a few other things, and even the effect that darkens the edge of the screen can be deactivated. Here's a video to show you how it looks. Because of the character's animations, playing RE2 in first person mode is a bit similar to what you have in the latest Rockstar games, as there is some definite inertia when you move around. That being said, it's still a very nice addition to an already great game.

In addition to our PC videos of Resident Evil 2, here is a 4K HDR video captured on Xbox One X.

After our verdict on Resident Evil 2, we an finally share some video content recorded on PC in 1440p with all settings maxed out (except for texture size we had to limit to 3 GB). No big spoilers to fear here, though if you intend to purchase the game, we obviously advise you to stay away from the following videos.

Resident Evil 2 is back in a true remake and time has come for our final verdict. Sadly, all video content is still under embargo, which means you guys will wait to wait a couple of more days to see the final game in action. For now, feel free to read our thoughts about it and to leave a comment if you feel like it.
